How I Met Your Mother - "Blitzgiving" - 11/22/10

@ the numbers from Lost

This will probably be an ep that will be called back to in future eps.

I thought last week was one of the top 5 episodes of all time. Then they go and do this...and put out another near-top 5 episode!

From the moment I saw Hurley would be playing Blitz, I knew it would be something special. We get Lost references, new catch phrases, call backs (I love the sandwich callback every time they use it), and it all fits into a pretty good story.

I was surprised that Ted didn't ask about Robin having Paul Stanley's makeup on. I know they showed how it got there, but it was a pretty funny background gag.

Another great episode. They've really stepped up their game after a blah season last year.

Still don't like Zooey but I'm warming up to her a bit. I would just hate it if they started dating.

Hurley was hilarious. I really hope he comes back again. He seemed to fit in perfectly with the group. Aw, Man!

That was a fantastic episode. I hope they don't abandon the Blitz, that was an incredible gag that they could easily return to like the Slap Bet. Barney being the Blitz was much funnier than Ted, but the gag worked either way. Jorge was great and seemed to have good chemistry with the group, but it did kinda feel like he was a 5th wheel in some scenes.

The Lost numbers were a riot. That was so obvious that I should have seen it coming from a mile away but didn't.

Great episode.

I realize it's a story being told, but I always love when crazy things like "magic" actually work in their world. That they can talk to each other telepathically, and the "Blitz" is a spirit that moves from one person to the next. It always makes me laugh.

Aw, man. My power was out for 4 hours last night so this didn't record.

Aw, man. Then I tried to watch it on CBS.com but their forced ad said it wasn't available or was being blocked by an adblocker and the video didn't continue.

I'm sure there's a torrent of other ways I can view this episode. I'm looking into it now. I'm not going to be The Blitz.

I sincerely hope and pray that the poor bastard in Quebec with the number 4815162342 has a landline and NOT a cell phone. Otherwise, he was getting a LOT of wang pics last night.

Re: How I Met Your Mother - "Blitzgiving" - 11/22/10

So the entire episode was full of references from Lost, hmm no wonder I didnt get it . The skateboarding dog was the only time I chuckled , I have watched every single episode so far but is anyone else ready to give up on this show? Take away Neil Patrick Harris and this show lasts a season, and I dare anyone to find a bigger douche on television today than Ted.

I didn't think that the episode was that great. More amusing than LOL funny.

418 is in Quebec -- AFAIK 481 does not exist.

Good episode. This season has been such a vast improvement over the last one.

I loved the blatant LOST references. When Steve said "I was stuck on that island..." and came over and yelled the numbers I laughed pretty hard. It was nice to see Ted act pretty mature in this episode toward the end and put someone else's feelings ahead of his own.
